DDC week 17: Venison and Mushroom Nachos

Smoky and spicy, and oh so comforting--nachos are the perfect food!

I continue on with my south-of-the-border themed meals this week. I had an emotional week, having just quit my extremely stressful job without having another job lined up. Actually, that’s not true. I’m studying to become a health coach, so I’ll have a job doing that…in about 9 months. In the meantime, I’ve got some bills to pay. So I spent a lot of time preparing to freelance and eating any and all chocolate I could get my hands on.

I’ve been a little stressed.


DDC week 16: Venison Con Queso and Chips

Venison Con Queso, the perfect Patty's Day treat.

Nothing says “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” like queso and chips! ;) Well, perhaps that isn’t quite true. But few things say “my tummy is about to be really happy” like queso and chips.


DDC week 15: Linguini with Duckballs

Linguini and duckballs adds a little class to the old family favorite.

Life is a little out of control right now. Case in point—I made this dark days meal on Tuesday. It’s now Sunday, and I’m needing to steal a quick five minutes to get it posted before round 2 of my insane family weekend begins. This weekend is the fun kind of insane: my brothers are in town because my nephew is auditioning for the Vienna Boys Choir and my sisters-in-law are celebrating their 40th birthday. Somehow, I became the coordinator for the birthday party. So I’ve had a lot on my plate. To top it off, I’m getting ready for my talk on Thursday at the Maple Avenue Market, which I learned yesterday is at 6:30, not 7:00 like I thought.
